Interesting. While I'm using my computer, it keeps running & running too. It only stops running when I shut it down. I think that's how it's supposed to work.

We have no idea of what you are talking about.

Can you rephrase it? Are you saying some fan noise or some application runs or what?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

"that's good i like the humor"

Yeah, I thought your post was pretty funny too. If you want our help, your question or explanation of the problem needs to make sense.

Use built in performance monitor to make a log of various activities. It may tell. Also see taskman for instant ideas.

I've been having a similar problem for about a week now. Using Task Manager, I've observed some services constantly reading & writing and using lots of CPU, specifically: winlogon.exe - intermittent high cpu; realplay.exe - several instances running and some of them using up to 40% cpu; svchost.exe - several instances running (as many as 7 at times) with lots of I/O; cisvc.exe - constant I/O; cidaemon.exe - constant I/O; lsass.exe - constant I/O. This is while no app's are running. Opening Outlook or MS Word or IE takes forever - and they run slower than usual when they finally open. Thought it may have somehting to do with the Indexing Service so stopped that and made it Manual Start but that didn't help. Running XP Home on a Dell 2400 with 1024 MB ram. HD only 40 gb with just 3.7 gb free space. Any ideas what's causing the slowness? (I also have an old HP laptop with same O/S but it's working fine.) (Using McAfee and Spybot S&D - both up to date so don't think it's a virus issue.)
